Fund Raising become a Lawsuit

The organizer of a Pokemon-themed fan event, that was supposed to take place in August during PAX Prime, was asked to be shut down at the behest of The Pokemon Company. What’s more, they are demanding him to pay $4,000 to settle the lawsuit. Ramar Larkin Jones, the organizer has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the money.

Written on the crowdfunding page, Jones said, “This year I tried to throw an unofficial Pokemon party because why not… it would be fun, I’m a huge fan, I know all my friends are fans, and I mostly wanted to geek out and add to the fun parties you can find all over the city.”

The day before this event was scheduled to take place, The Pokemon Company took a legal action against Jones. For its part, The Pokemon Company claimed that Jones and other organizers were guilty of “blatant and willful” copyright infringement regarding the use of its IP to promote the fan event, which had been held annually since 2011. In addition, it was not free, as Jones was charging a $2 door fee.

He now says The Pokemon Company never sent a cease and desist order.

“Totally didn’t expect that,” he explained. “I canceled the party, refunded everyone the two dollars I charged to help cover all the prizes I bought for the cosplay contest and smash bros tournament. Pokemon wants $4,000 that I just don’t have. I told them I would pay it over a year and they denied that. They want it now within the next 45 days.”
